Josh Wise to Run Ford at Indianapolis

Josh Wise, the driver of the No. 98 car, will be switching manufacturers up a little bit over the next few weeks. Phil Parsons Racing usually utilizes Chevrolets, but due to a lack of funding, they switch things up and run Ford Fusions at the restrictor plate tracks.

This weekend, Wise is running a Ford. However, that will not be the only time he will be using a blue-oval styled car. Speedway Digest has learned that the No. 98 team will race a Ford at Indianapolis in late July. Due to Pocono’s similar characteristics to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Wise said it was the best decision for the team to run a Ford due to their lack of funding.

At Sonoma, Wise will have the Dogecoin colors return to the No. 98 car. After fans purchased more memorabilia than needed to fund the Talladega race, the team thought it would be a good idea to run the scheme in order to give thanks to the fans. Wise had a special helmet designed by Off Axis Paint as it enables him to have the helmet aboard his car throughout the season.

Currently, Wise stated the team does not have funding for the majority of the remainder of the season. In the past, Phil Parsons Racing was known for being a start-and-park organization, but after a few solid performances early in 2014, the team opted to run all of the races for the entire season.
